what round would you use ?
After helping my son this past summer carry his tree stand into the state game lands and put it up i have a question. Here in western Pa. black bears are pretty common. Well after I tell him I,ll help him lug it in, he tells me he,s got a picture of a black bear from his camera that he had on a tree in the area were he was going to put his tree stand for bow-hunting deer.Then he tells me about the guy he meet that has a tree stand about 200 yards away that ran into a bear while putting up his tree stand. Well anyway this guy tells my son that this bear had him trapped up a tree for about an hour and a half before it finally wondered away.The guy said he had his 357mag on him but didnt want to shoot it unless he had too. Well what to know is after I hear this I said I'm goeing in there without a gun so I took my SP-101 357 with the most potent round I had at the time whitch was the federal 125 gr. SJHP that probably not the best but all I had at the time. Since then I picked up some 158gr. JSP in 357mag and rossi M92 in 357 with a 20in. barrel. So my question is which round would better in either gun? Thanks
